Didn’t know it had one but now I do will go press some buttons in van 👍😝
NO CRAIG STOP. There is a procedure buddy. If you start pressing buttons you could mess up other things mate.

Have you got English translated stickers on yours yet??? SNV32427.JPG

1. Press info button
2. Use round SET button to select/scroll to desired option on AV screen
3. You need to select the lower RHS option from the 5 options given
4. Press SET and select the little fuel pump icon at the top 3 options then given
5. This will now show you the fuel computer scale
6. Move and select the second image below the current KPL reading and press and hold for a few seconds and then it will re-set the computer.
7. Start driving and after a few seconds it will start to show what your doing KPL wise.

The higher the reading and the higher the graph scale on the right the better MPG you will get.

Best ive had on mine is 10.5 KPL which is around 28 mpg on a run with cruise control set to 65 mph.

Not had chance @Brendan1969 to fiddle with buttons!!!
I go by the km reset button for working out mpg. Will try your way!!
I did know what button did what though!!! Found on an earlier link 🤪

Currently waiting my turn on the pit at Maidstone exhaust centre to get the exhaust fixed on TB2. Mind you, it does sound good minus the back box. You can actually hear that V6 growl😉.
Well the good news is that there's practically zero rust under TB2. The bad news is that the exhaust is rotten from the cats to the tailpipe.
He invited me down the pit for a look-see (been many years since I was last in a workshop pit.) the exhaust is a Chinese puzzle of patches. Says he can fabricate a cat back system in stainless for £450+Vat. Doesn't sound too bad, what say you guys?

Depends on how long your going to keep it. Doesn't sound bad for a custom stainless exhaust.

Ask him for a CASH price instead. NO VAT.
